Thirty Percent of Students Competing in 2018 National Geographic Bee are of Indian Origin
The prestigious competition with $85,000 in awards will be held May 21-23 in the nation’s capital.
For six consecutive years, Indian American students have won the prestigious and rather grueling National Geographic Bee and now a good number of geography whizzes of Indian origin will be competing in the championship event next week.
Of the 54 state winners ranging in age from 10 to 14 years who are heading to the nation’s capital to participate in the 30th annual National Geographic Bee, some 16, nearly thirty percent, are Indian Americans. The competition will be held May 21-23, capped off by the championship event at the National Geographic headquarters in downtown DC.
